Not to be bias but i’ve listened to plenty of Radiohead “Reckoner” remixes in the last few weeks and this Mux Mool one is the by far the best. You can put it up next to anyone’s even the Flying Lotus and Diplo ones, here it is for free, let me know what you think and if you’re a YTMND fan then you should listen to it this way.
The last few days i’ve had Label owner/musician Peter Kersten(aka Sten or Lawrence) stay at my place and we’ve shared a lot of videos and music back and forth until the early mornings. He has a couple of beautiful releases out this month on Dial and Spectral Sound, this Divided song is out tomorrow, it is by far one of my favorites, if you like any of the softer melodic 4/4 songs i’ve posted then this is a must have.
Kompakt’s Mikkel Metal has his own genre I believe, he puts out these dark shuffle songs that just keep me entranced until the last note and its accompanied by some really nice hints of vocals.
I don’t know much about this Paul Lansky track besides reading somewhere that Radiohead sampled him and this track isn’t for everyone but if you can get in the mindset and take on 9 mins of this then by all mean do it, I think its rewarding in a way and enjoyable.
Last but not least Peter showed me this Werner Herzog footage from “The Great Ecstasy Of The Sculptor Steiner” its the opening scene, I will be hunting this video down, the camera shots and color are breathtaking.

The drumming in Mux Mool’s Reckoner is awesome. I don’t like the heavy synths like the one in the beggining though.

Ah Paul Lansky…he and I go wayyyy back. He used to have a thing on his website that if you could specify where in Mild und Liese the sample for Ideoteque came from, he would send you a few tracks from his secret stash or something. I came across this when I was just really starting to get into Kid A, still my fav Radiohead album. Too bad that was on my college email account which has long since been deleted. Paul’s music is a little too wacky for me. That Mux mix however, is sounding great.
And Jakub, when you find the full film, find the soundtrack too! I’m lovin the accompanying music!

Just so you know, lots of Werner Herzog movies’ sountracks are made by a band named Popol Vuh, which is basically one man : Florian Fricke. They’re often associated with Krautrock, although I think they’re much more.
Try the soundtrack for Aguirre by Herzog, the music’s so haunting. Maybe it’s because the movie’s so great too.

herzog is so the man it makes me shit my own pants just thinking how beyond the dude is. as for popul vuh/florian, they’ve put out some decent stuff, nothing to place in the pantheon – however, as with many artists, he (fricke) definitely has flourishes of brilliance, as can be heard in that youtube clip(if that is indeed florian).

reckoner remix? i’m not sure which sucks more, the original or the remix. neither of them duds deserve to be stars (nor planets for that matter) . . .
